I really like a 6wt for a great all purpose light bass and tailwater trout rod. throwing mid size poppers and light streamers , it performs great. Nymph rigs with strike indicators or hopper patterns on a breezy tailwater are simple. I purchased a TFO BVK 6wt with the full wells grip last year about this time and have enjoyed catching trout, smallmouth, bream on it. It is so light in the hand and the full wells grip is very comfortable. I like the way I can still cast a long distance from a sitting position in my canoe and yet it still makes bluegill feel like a good fight with the rod. the fighting butt is small and nice for storing the rod across the seats with the reel allowed to hang down. I think it would a great light salt rod.
